|SOUTHEASTERN CHOIRS SEEKING STUDENT, COMMUNITY SINGERS
HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s
choral ensembles are seeking singers.
The Northshore Chorale and University
Chorus – non-audition ensembles open to all students and area residents
– will begin rehearsals on Jan. 18, said Alissa Mercurio Rowe, director
of choral activities.
“With more than 100 singers from majors
throughout the university and professions across the community, these ensembles
regularly perform major works with professional orchestras and soloists,”
Rowe said. “We’re inviting anyone who enjoys choral singing to join us
at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 18, in the Pottle Music Building Annex choral
room [room 165A].”
The choirs rehearse together from 7-9
p.m. each Tuesday in the choral room.
“This spring the ensembles will perform
a variety of works including spirituals, folk songs and the “Pergolesi
Magnificat” with full orchestra,” Rowe said.
The repertoire for the choirs also
includes Mozart's “Requiem” and “Mass in C minor,” Bernstein's “Chichester
Psalms,” the “Fauré Requiem,” Orff's “Carmina Burana,” Schubert’s
“Mass in G,” and Vaughan Williams’ “Five Mystical Songs” in addition to
many other masterworks.
In 2004 the University Chorus and Northshore
Chorale performed two patriotic choruses with the Southeastern Wind Symphony
at the Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts during Fanfare. They also
presented Vivaldi’s “Gloria” with full orchestra last December.
